With a multitude of championship titles and accolades to his name, Lando Norris has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting young talents in world motorsport.
The 18-year-old has more than made his mark during his formative steps through the junior categories. Highly commended by peers and experts alike, he was honoured with the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) Rising Star award, after taking the inaugural MSA Formula Championship crown in his 2015 debut season, a year after making history as the youngest world karting champion at the age of 14.
In 2016, Lando further impressed a panel of esteemed judges when he was awarded the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Award thanks to a sensational campaign that saw him crowned the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup champion a week after taking the Eurocup Formula 2.0 title and eight months after securing the Toyota Racing Series New Zealand Championship.
Norris continued his phenomenal rise through the motorsport ranks in 2017 by becoming the youngest FIA Formula 3 European Champion in history and in November was announced as McLaren’s official test and reserve driver for the forthcoming F1 season. He will dovetail those commitments with racing for Carlin Motorsport in Formula 2.
At 18 years and three months Norris will also be the youngest driver competing at ROC Riyadh.
